NC is finally having a bit of what passes for winter weather around here--temps in the low 40's and dreary gray skies. It's definitely indoor weather for me, and I find myself wanting to do things to up the home coziness factor and combat the winter blahs. Building fires, making mugs of hot cocoa with marshmallows for the girls, baking cookies, and sewing. Always sewing. Big, cushy pillows like Rachel Galloway's, maybe? Or a sweet quilt (shown left) like Emmanuelle's at Alice and Co., made from Spoonflower swatches to curl up under when the girls and I are on the sofa reading the newest batch of library books?
